from washington. what are the details of the nominee? >> kelly, back in 2004, senator kerry let then state senator barack obama speak at his nomination, and it was a road to the white house. and yesterday at the white house president obama nominated kerry to be secretary of state in his second term. >> in a sense, john's entire life has prepared him for this role. as a son of a foreign service officer, he has a deep respect for the men and women of the the state department, the role they play in advancing our interests and values, the risks that they undertake and the sacrifice that is they make along with their families. >> issues with iran, syria and north korea are the most pressing senator kerry will face if he's confirmed. yesterday, a long time colleague of his, senator john mccain congratulated him on his nomination and will consider that nomination, but he did not promise to support it. >> my view on whether secretary kerry should be-- or senator kerry should be secretary will not be based on differents of views. we had difference of views going back to 1991 when he said
challenged the members of our party to grapple with these issues, make tough choices. washington has a serious spending problem. this was the year, the size of our debt, all $16 trillionths of it, surpass the size of our retientire economy. but president's solution of raising tax rates would hurt jobs, at a time when for too many of our citizens are struggling to find them. i have seen the damage that higher taxes can do for jobs and families. i do not want tax rates to go up. republicans do not want tax rates to go up. the best way to address are crippling debt is to make significant spending cuts and fix our tax code, to pave the way for long-term growth and opportunity. this is an approach that most americans approve. we only run the house. democrats continued to run washington. hope springs eternal. we have it in us to come together and do the right thing. will continue to work with our colleagues in congress and the white house on a plan that protects families and small businesses. for now, i wish all the american people a blessed and mary christmas. >> on "newsmakers," represen
. >> peter doocy joins us live from washington with the very latest as we see video of the president hopping on board air force one, right? >> that's right, clayton. president obama popped in to the james brady briefing room at the white house yesterday at about 5:30 and basically said that since the american people in november voted for democratic control of the white house and the senate and republican control of the house. lawmakers need to compromise but he also made clear as of right now when it comes to the fiscal cliff and avoiding it, there is no deal. >> so as we leave town for a few days to be with our families for the holidays, i hope it gives everybody some perspective. everybody can cool off. everybody can drink some eggnog, have some christmas cookies, sing some christmas carols. enjoy company of loved ones. and then i would ask every member of congress while they're back home to think about that. think about the obligations we have to the people who sent us here. think about the hardship that some americans will endure if congress does nothing at all. >> it was just a few minu
civil liberties union? >> a here in washington has been a major impediment and a lot of people believe that nobody should be treated involuntarily. well, that flies in the face of the fact that we treat people with active tuberculosis involuntarily when they won't take medicine. we also restrict people who have alzheimer's disease and don't know they're sick. so, we do this for other conditions, but we have a lot of trouble thinking through this clearly for people with severe mental illness. >> paul: you mentioned in your op-ed for us, the number of activity psychiatric beds has declined from more than half a million to fewer than 50,000. i guess this is part of that movement you're describing against incarcerating the mentally ill, but you're saying that that decline in those beds has endangered the american public? >> it has, because if you try to get somebody who needs hospitalization into a hospital today, it's virtually impossible. as one of my colleagues says, it's easier to get somebody into harvard than it is a mental hospital. we have only one out of the 20 beds that we had 50
of the washington post, this is like lincoln at gettysburg, what would they operate on. >> i think it's a failure of the part of imagination on time magazine, if we can't come up with anyone other than the guy who won the election. >> was it a cop-out? >> i think in their minds he is the perennial person of the day, bern of the hour, person of year. >> and i think president morsi, and taken over and it really has become the narrative of the entire world. the arab spring, i call it the islamicic awakinawaking. >> rick, aren't you going to hold president obama responsible for that? >> give him credit-- >> so who should we expect next year? or is it too early to talk about. >> i think it's too early to start talking about hillary clinton. i think we're going to have to wait an um can of years, what do you say. >> i'm going to go with president obama? >> we'll have to see whether she actually testifies in front of the committee while she is still secretary of state as the senators seem to request. stay with us, we have more news watch coming up.
